Discuss how Threat Modeling is used to determine and assess threats to information system and the roll of vulnerability assessment in the threat modeling process.
The paper should be based on leading industry practices and include at a minimum complete strategies of modeling threats and assessing vulnerabilities, the reasons why these are good strategies, the impact of threats and vulnerabilities on organizations and how organizations can best address its potential impacts.
Illustrations (figures) should be included in explaining and supporting your arguments. Experiments data should be included while possible.
This assignment must exemplify a scholarly paper that is based on external research in addition to the assigned and recommended course readings. Prepare your paper in Microsoft Word. Include a cover page, running header, table of content, an abstract, main text with section headings, conclusions, and a minimum of 7 references. The page count starts with the Abstract and ends with the Conclusions. The citations and the reference list in the paper should be formatted in accordance with APA 6th edition guidelines.

It investigates the process used to investigate the possible sources of risks, the levels or standards of risks that can be in an information system in an organization, and the solutions. It has also the vulnerability assessment and the importance attached to it in ensuring the security of the model. The importance of vulnerability testing for threat models is critical for organizations, and it is recommended for use in all the software applications. Lastly, the impacts of threat modeling and vulnerability assessments to organizations are identified. Threat Modeling Threat modeling helps in analyzing the risks to information systems that are associated with an applicationâ€™s use. Attacks and vulnerabilities are identified to meet the security objectives and develop the counter measurements for an organization (Microsoft, 2005). Meeting security objectives helps in smooth operations as it reduces the worries that organizations have about misuse of information. In most cases, this procedure is carried out on applications whose codes have compromised the security of infor...
